Yeah, that would make sense with the June 5th date that was cited in one of their leaked presentations

Re: W530 Release Date

Is the cluster of keys on the top above the backspace going to be their on these new laptops? It seems like the mock up picture gets ride of these. I use my home and end keys allll the time.

No, they've replaced the award-winning, 7-row classic keyboard with a 6-row chiclet keyboard.

Re: W530 Release Date

Well, it also seems that the eSata/USB port is no longer. I suppose that having 3 USB 3.0 ports is better, but the eSata will only be available with the docking solution.

Dropping eSATAp sucks.
